Aphrodite's Beauty. by William Brennan

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

The Aphrodite fritillary is a large fritillary that is maddeningly similar in appearance to the Great Spangled and Atlantis fritillary. They are all very common and often you can find all three types fluttering around milkweed in the same field. I’m not exactly sure if this is an Aphrodite or not. If a butterfly expert happens to come around this photo, please feel free to Bmail me if I’m wrong. I captured this male with my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 85mm macro lens. It was taken at Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. It was taken in the summer of 2011.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
